“The officers answered, “Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks.” The Pharisees then answered them, “You have not also been led astray, have you?” (John 7:46, 47)
Reason is reason. Sadly, because of others, we can set our reason aside. The Lord gave us a mind and He desires that we use it. Think through what Scripture says. Think through what you hear and you will see that things fit. There are always those who will put pressure on you to conform to this world.
Lord, in many ways and many times, there are those who put pressure on me to conform to ideas that are not true. Help me to stand firm in Your Word, knowing that You who authored all of creation will bring about all that You have promised. Help me not have beliefs that waver, but instead stand firmly in the truth.
Lead me today, Lord Jesus, that I may think on Your Word. When others confront me and seek to lead me away from what is true, help me to hold fast and live according to Your Word. Knowing that the wicked one uses whom he will to lead people astray, use me today to speak Your Word of truth to counter his lies. Amen.
